Best chance to see whales

Our captain and his spotter took us to the path of 3 whales migrating to Baja within 20 minutes of the start of the trip. Great job!

Lovely afternoon off Dana Point, CA

We took part in the Whale Watching expedition (Dana Wharf Sportfishing) last week. Though it was January, Southern California's weather was beautiful. Our boat was clean, tidy, and the crew was very helpful. My parents, in their 80's, were able to sit comfortably in the galley, and watch the cruise from inside. Our captain was very informative, and we saw a "pod" of a type of whale I'd never heard of, a few schools of dolphins (they loved playing in the wake of the boat!), and two grey whales (a mother and her calf.) The trip was just the right length and was very pleasant. Though we did not eat, the cooking coming from the galley smelled great!

Killer Whales!

This was the best whale watching excursion we have ever taken. We saw pods of killer whales, along with grey whales and dolphins, all for the price of $18.00 a person.

Lucky trip

The success of our trip was primarily due to the fact that the weather was perfect and pod of orcas showed up. Since orca sightings are rare this far south, even the captain was excited. Still, I would recommend this trip as long as one realizes not every trip gets to see whales.

No whales, but literally thousands of dolphins that frolicked around the boat and wake.

Beautiful 2 hours on the water

We had decided to see California from the water and had settled on a whale watch. What a great surprise to find 1/2 price Tuesday. The crew was friendly, the water was calm and the dolphins fun to watch. I am still determined to see a whale. Maybe next time?

At the end of the run we finally saw 3 magnificent whales and though it was time to return he took the extra time to ensure that all saw them and were able to get pictures.....then offered another special to anyone who wanted to go back out to see the whales again on the next run.....very pleasant experience

Interesting Feeding Frenzy

Although we saw no whales that day, the crew did find a very interesting feed taking place involving a large number of dolphins, seals, and various birds. The activity around this small area was amazing. Made the whole trip worthwhile.

We had a great time on the trip and saw more than a whale. The boat was big, beautiful and very comfortable. We highly recommend this trip. Dana Point is a lovely community.
